Taken from IMDB:Two fast-talking insurance salesmen meet Mary, who is running away from her wealthy mother, and they agree to help her run a hotel that she owns. When they find out that the hotel is run down and nearly abandoned, they launch a phony PR campaign that presents the hotel as a resort favored by the rich. Their advertising succeeds too well, and many complications soon arise.

Great movie but why no songs?
I'm just discovering the great talents of Wheeler and Woolsey and I've enjoyed several of their movies. One thing I noticed here though was the absence of songs, usually a staple part of their films. Several times the scene seemed to be perfectly set for a song, such as Wheeler lifting Dorothy Lee on to the desk and saying "I wanna say something" or the balllroom scene, etc). In the former I was just settling back expecting one of those marvelous Wheeler/Lee duets (My One Ambition from Dixiana, L Love You So Much from The Cuckoos, etc) I was really disappointed when nothing came.
Still a wonderful movie though with the duo on top form!

I'd never heard of Wheeler & Woolsley; they really are quite funny. Dialogue delivery & hilarious dictionary routine is priceless. I really enjoyed this movie. Quality & sound is exceptional for an almost 80 year old film. I wonder if there are more of their films available?
This is a good movie. The comedy team of Wheeler & Woolsey deserves to be remembered. Their dialogue is rapid fire with good timing and delivery. Good supporting actors round out the story. I downloaded the largest file and found it well worth the effort. For a 1930 sound movie I have no complaints. This is better than your average comedy of the period.

The MPG1 is only the first reel./ It stopped in the middle of the movie.
